Hungarian Revolution of 1848

Hey long time no see! Totally my bad. So what's my excuse this time? To be honest I've not been feeling like loging in lately. It's all shining outside and got a new bike too and still busy with all my school stuff cos I was ill and missed 1 and a half weeks and been trying to catch up and still feel under the weather. I've already missed my swimming lessons three times in a row. So that's more or less why I was away.But now I'm back to post this drawing of mine to pay my respect for our revolution of 1848. 

Feeling Hungarian
Okay I know he looks like an Eskimo but I'm still happy with it. Who knows Eskimos might celebrate it as well. So many Hungarian people live around the world. Oh and Have you spotted his cockade. We all wear one on this day and my was really beautiful cos mom made it what a pity I can't show you now but I gave it to one of my cousins. In the middle the green part of it was heart-shaped and attached by a nice little button. Actually I drew this last year but at that time I forgot to show you and I know today is not quite accurate either cos the exact date for celebration of it is march 15. That's the day the revolution started 164 years ago with bloodless mass demonstrations in Buda and Pest the day when Petőfi (my unintentional wintery interpretation of him is here) read the Nemzeti dal aloud in Vörösmarty Square to a gathering crowd and his poem which is called National song in English is said to have inspired the revolution. I like it and know it by heart and after little googling I can show you its translation in English if you click here.
And on youtube I found these pieces, 3 ways to recite the poem. I like the first one cos the actor reciting is the one who gave his voice to the great Mufasa in the movie Lion King. It's like a warm pillow. You feel safe. The other 2 are quite disturbing. Especially that girl's interpretation and if you listen carefully to the last one you'd tell it's a bit different cos that actor is leaving out the refrain and makes the poem so different like it's a sudden explosion.

Fluid state

When fluidity throws 2 living souls together
I've got this for fluid and done by pencil and put some modest shading too. it pictures a gently snoozing polar bear on a robust ice-floe while a penguin's drifting closer and closer and he's getting more and more anxious cos he's been told of the polar bear and it was quite scary but i tell you this bear is kind and friendly so there'd have been no need to be worried but at this very moment my bird ain't know nothing about it.
oh yes the fluidity! it's the big melting the ice is getting thiner and thiner and this lost penguin's is just so tiny that he's standing on tiptoe and needs new accomodations somehow sooner rather than later and the ocean drift freezing fluid makes this encounter kinda inevitable.

Me In the Sombrero

A girl in sombrero
okay willie your request is granted and here's the photo of me in the sombrero wearing it like a mexican girl on a hot summer day. i liked it and mum made cakes cos the girls were responsible for the food and the boys brought the drink. and my cakes are not those sweetened ones but i don't know its name in english and it's roundish we call it pogácsa and letter cs is pronanced like the ch in chimpanzee and á i don't know whether you have this one it's like pronancing my without the m and the y only the one between. see that is an á. 

Zsombi (4) & Gergő (6)
Light saber & wooden spoon
on this other picture above my cousines can be seen in their kindergarden on the same day. darth vader is zsombi the other one is gergő who is a chef. they sent me this via email. they are very funny right? especially zsombi he's such a character. oh i love them!
okay a bit more about my school party. zsófi was a pirate and actually there were quite many pirates this year. balu dressed like a doctor and ágó was a wounded soldier and balu tried to save his life and he brought an old army stretcher that had been used in some war and balu said more then 80 soldiers had died on it and if you looked at it very closely you could spot some faint blood stain on it. marci was an exhausted daddy cos his father's been kinda weary these days. marci has 4 brothers and sisters and the youngest is only several months old and cries a lot. oh and our teachers were lumbermen. 
there was a lot of funny game too. we shaved balloons and my didn't burst! and everyone was allowed to present her or his favourite music and i chose here I am. and danced a lot as well and drunken sailor was the best i guess. funny dance indead and i plan to play it on the violin too cos it just tickles the ear. 

i see this version is not appropriate but i couldn't find the one we'd sung in the classroom. this one is very funny though. and darth vader is in it too doing that funny dance. i laughed a lot. 
oh and at the end of the day i watched one of the pirates of the caribbean movies. so i tell you willie the day was perfect. hope you like it. bye everybody LiLi out

Popularity - Dream about a mustached cat

katy perry dressed in bra and fancy letters
dreaming of a mustached cat
Okay i'm gonna be quick this time got only a couple of hours left for this drawing to post on If so i tell you the story. it was willie and his drawing of suspense and his bodies covered by writings which i found kinda interesting and we started to talk about this and willie told me those writings had come from homeless people they'd been given money for those boards that now willie applied between his lines and i guess it was important to him to use those boards this way cos i think he's not that kind of person who gives up on them and i spotted on his blog that we are all homeless picture and then it came home to me that i might use one of my drawing to express this. 
so my work at the begining was about a singer called katy perry cos i was at this birthsdayparty of lilla my best friend during our kindergarten years and now we attened different schools but she invited me to her party and all the girls i hadn't met before were listening to katy perry whose songs i was no so familiar with so i played a lot with the boys instead and it was great fun and all the time i tried to talk to or play with lilla there came this girl one of lilla's schoolmates and she always pulled her away from me cos she told that she'd been her new best friend for a long time. so when i heared this new topic popularity i thought katy perry might popular enough to use for this. and as willie suggested i wanted to put on cut out papers but couldn't find any good enough and had no much time after school for this collage techinique and then mum gave me a helping hand actually it was her who finally put on those cut out pieces but showed me on the way how to use photoshop for this and i could create my 100% own picture later but this one can be considered as 70 and 30%. and i think my part is that 70%. so we used old writings of 2 of my ancestors who lived so many years ago and whose handwritings are very beautiful. okay i know there's no homeless boards involved in this one but i couldn't manage to get any and dad said no way anyway. actually they don't usually have those boards around here but we give or buy them food especially this time of the year. by the ikea mum always buys them hotdogs and always buys junky little gizmos from them like you know gizmos.
okay let's cut back to popularity. this image of katy perry is just about it. however blanketed by beautiful letters beyond that she's just like a homeless alien like lady gaga. these days my favorite song's been here i am by bryan adams from the movie spirit. just been in my ears and can't help but sing it all the time. i like that horse in the film. i like horses and this one is just beautiful. okay i'm off to school where there's a costume ball this afternoon and i gonna be a mexican girl wearing a widebrimed sombrero. i chose the costume myself. it took half an hour but worth it. okay really go now LiLi out.

Suspense and one of those Songs I'm in - Lily, Rosemary and The Jack Of Hearts

Dylan in the morning with Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts

yes there's a lily in there this song that is a bit confusing no really sure what it's all about i mean hardly can match the pieces and the names and there was a murder and a knife and this lily likes playing 5 card stud but has no luck as she drew up the Jack of heart. i think it's a good song to listen to cos it just goes on and on and on endlessly and just pulling you and you kinda get lost a bit and then all of a suddan there's this knife thing out of nowhere and it ends in hanging rosmemary and this jack of heats is nowhere to be found. so what do you think? it just makes me flummoxed but it's weird cos it's like getting up early in a winter morning and it's freezing cold to the bone outside and in your head you are still in that dream of yours you can't really recall now and in the kitchen mum's warming up some milk and you don't know what you should do next and i think this is the same moment that led this singer to write a song like this and the words of it. and i found lots of funny pictures of this man who became very old on the way but then in black and white he must have been real funny. look at his hair for instance. First i wanted to link the song from youtube but this time couldn't find one interesting enough. a couple of months ago there was a good one but it's no available anymore. So i deceided to draw something that shows how a song like that of lily and jack and the cabaret might be born. to be frank dad googled a photo of this singer called dylan that pictures him this way and we agreed that it'd fit so it's done by pencil and i chose to color only his hair cos it made him so special to me on those pictures and i used brown aquarelle pencil and by a few drop of water made it look watercolorish and used it on his coffee too cos the scent of it matches perfectly the winter mornings just like my mum's and on my drawing my bob dylan no sure that he wants to put down the story the way it'd been in his head. that's why we can't ever know who really killed that man.
Well first i wanted to use this post as part of my songs i'm in section but dad said he thought this drawing of mine could kinda say something about suspense too and i said i was no that sure and than he tried to explane what he meant but i could not follow and just let it be shared on illustration friday too and we will see how it ends. 
okay what else? well hope the player will work. daddy's responsible for it...
Oh and one more important thing. I'd like to dedicate this post to tomas serrano cos i tried something here he's made on his blog lately. doing some portraits. hope he'll like my first real attempt. Okay that's all for now. See you later and bye!

I put 'PLEASE FORWARD' on this post + Tarka magyarka különszám!

Okay i know it's not quite an appropriate example to 'forward' and i've no choice but to put it this way via this image of my nighttime submarine of the purple sea cos not much time left and I'd really really like it to be given out that i got this story written by me and my teacher entered it for this compatition and now it is officially picked by apácai publishing house for the final round in which the jury gonna announce the best ones and there's this public vote going on and I'd really really love if you sent me a vote. Down here below i pasted all the writing and I know i know it's in hungarian but you must trust me cos i like it. only thing you've got to do is FORWARD this code of my writing [the code you have to copy: 3-4. évf. mese: 088-M] to this address [tehetseg@apaczai.hu] by email just copy the code. 

If you can't translate it to english i tell you it's about a girl who's never before been to the zoo and never before seen animals like elephant or lion only mouse and flies and snails with that broken antenna and all the other girls on the playground kept on chitchatting about those giant creatures so my girl at home that night while preparing to sleep told her mom  she wanted to see those animals and it was over midnight by then and her mom told her how it might be in a zoo and it was so warm and sparkling and huge like a carneval that my girl fell asleep and in her dream it all came true and there were no cages and bars and no visitors around just that girl and those creatures playing with her even managed to give a five to a long piton and it was that much fun and even the mouse from under her bed was there and the snail with that broken antenna and her 8 legged spiders who made spun candy clouds onto the sky and it felt so good and it wasn't that sad when the dream ended cos in that morning her mom brought her warm milk in her bed. this is the end and here it is how it was actually written:

Egy életre szóló álom / Gondoltam egy kislányt
Pásztohy Lili története
Gondoltam egy kislányt. Olyan formát, mint Charlie a Csokigyárból, csak nem fiú volt, és nem a Csokigyárba vágyott rettenetesen, hanem az állatkertbe. Mert ő állatból csak aprócskákat ismert: a tavaszi susztikat a járda repedéseiből, a békákat a patak partjáról, az egyszarvú csigát és a nyolc lábú pókot az ágya alól, meg az esti egércincogást. Egy nap azonban hallott más gyerekeket, akik hatalmasabb és félelmetesebb állatokat is láttak már: oroszlánt, medvét és zsiráfot, meg ormányos elefántot, és ezek a különleges teremtmények nem is laktak messze, csak itt, a budapesti állatkertben. Hú, ez a kislány nagyon szeretett volna találkozni ezekkel az állatokkal. Este nem is bírt elaludni. Elhatározta, ha törik, ha szakad, megvárja, míg hazaér az anyukája a munkából, s elmeséli neki, mifélét csacsogtak azok a gyerekek, meg azt, hogy ő is meg akarja nézni azt a helyet, ahol látni oroszlánt, medvét és zsiráfot, meg ormányos elefántot. Nagyon-nagyon sokáig várt, virrasztott az ágyában. Már olyan későre járt, hogy hallotta a nagymamáját horkolni kint a fotelben. Aztán amikor már cudarul csiklandozta az álom, s már jobban esett volna aludni, mint anyára várni, hirtelen fordult a zárban a kulcs:
- Anya, anya, te vagy az? - suttogta izgatottan a kislány.
- Hékás-békás, te még ébren vagy!? - csodálkozott az anyukája, és leült a kislány ágyának a szélére. A kislány pedig elmesélte az oroszlánt, a medvét és a zsiráfot, meg az ormányos elefántot, és hogy azok a gyerekek már voltak az állatkertben, ahová ő is nagyon, de nagyon el szeretne egyszer menni. Az anyukája hideg kezével megsimogatta a kislány arcát, és azt mondta, hogy mindennél jobban szereti, s hogy egyszer becsszóra el fognak menni az állatkertbe, de ahhoz most szépen el kell aludni. Hogy jobban essen az alvás, az anyukája megfogta a kislány kezét, s elmesélte neki, milyennek képzeli ő az állatkertet. A meséjében ott volt az oroszlán, a medve és a zsiráf, meg az ormányos elefánt, és még vagy ezer érdekesebbnél érdekesebb állat. Aztán valahol a lajhárnál, vagy tán a szerecsenmaki kifutója előtt az anyuka elengedte a kislány kezét, s rábízta az álommanóra az állatkerti kalauzolást. S akkor hirtelen eltűntek a rácsok, és az állatkert egy nyüzsgő és hangos állatkarnevállá változott, ahol az oroszlán, a medve és a zsiráf, meg az ormányos elefánt, de még a lajhár és a szerecsenmaki is együtt járta a táncot. Az ormányos trombitázott, az oroszlán a tücsök hegedűjén játszott. A kis gorilla nagy tenyerével kézen fogta, az orrszarvú meg cirógatta. Még a papagáj sem feleselt, a víziló meg, képzeljétek, kecsesen ugrókötelezett. Valahol a forgatagban még pacsizott is egy nagy pitonnal. De ott voltak a susztik is, meg a békák, az egércincogás, és az összes egyszarvú csigák a nyolclábú pókokkal, akik szorgosan szőtték vattacukorfelhőiket a ragyogó kék égre. Így folyt az álom jókedvvel és bukfencekkel, és oly sokáig tartott, mint azelőtt még egyik álma sem. Sőt, még egy icipicit annál is tovább, és most nem is volt olyan fájó a búcsúzkodás, mert reggel anyukája ágyba hozta a kislány meleg kakaóját.

So tell me do you like it or not? I like it a lot. If you like it too you can drop a vote and you know what if i won you'll get a prize as well from me all of you. Here it is below what I drew right now. this is a snow penguin saying 'YOU WON' and actually you can take her with you right now i give it to you as a gift and you don't even have to vote for me i just simply give it to YOU! Bye LiLi out

Hope you'll like it. Bye LiLi out
